for having me. >> michael: kate, we read so much about mississippi. mississippi used to have 14 abortion clinics. now it just has one. how in 2013 does something like that happen? >> well, you know, it's a cumulative effect. it's in the early 80s that it had 14, but now the state has put on restriction after restriction. they have rules that you can't have an abortion after 16 weeks you have to have permission if you're a minor. it forced clinics to close. now you have just one clinic and that is under threat of being closed for the next few weeks. >> michael: that clinic is staffed by a doctor who flies in to work there. it just seems that it's so arcane, the laws that they have there. it doesn't mean that abortion is going to go away. it means that women will leave that state and have an abortion in another state. you spoke with a woman who wanted an abortion. i want to listen to what she had to say. >> so what brings you today? >> well, really it's not a good thing. i have two 11-year-olds who are nine months apart. i have a 7-month-old. my oldest are having to go without. it's really

the americas, we have a severe weather system pushing through the mississippi river valley, rushing off toward the east. already has been widespread damage. sadly, one person reportedly reportedly killed in tennessee due to a tree falling down. and this severe weather is going to persist, already, tornadoes being reported. tornado threat slowly decreasing. but still will be lingering there across much of the southeast. winds kicking up and stronger storms to 112 kilometers per hour. all due to that cold front, the surge of ware arm from the south, carrying moisture with it.me arm from the south, carrying moisture with i ae arm from the south, carrying moisture with iie arm from the south, carrying moisture with ire arm from the south, carrying moisture with i arm from the south, carrying moisture with iarm from the south, carrying moisture with irm from the south, carrying moisture with im from the south, carrying moisture with i from the south, carrying moisture with it. and now behind it, though, a big game changer setting up here. cold air spilling out of the arctic. that will be setting up

. that is going to move over to mississippi all along this cold front. as that pushes to the east, even a few super cells could be developing out of that. with the risk comes with that a tornado or two as that continues to cruise off here. but behind it we are watching another low pressure area. and this one here is moving across the northern rockies. that's going to bring snowfall but the big story with this one is a game changer because it will usher in the coldest temperatures of the season so far, all the way even down to portions of southern california. you're going to be seeing temperatures well below average. this is going to work its way to the east dropping temperatures below freezing, so if you are along the eastern seaboard, enjoy the warm weather for the time being because it is going to cool right off. now we'll take a look over to the british isles, you're going to see a break on your thursday. we are seeing some sunny skies move across the area, but on friday and saturday the cool air pressure is going to move in to kick up the winds and bring some heavy rainfall with any gail
. robert? >> that's right, gene. actually across much of the lower mississippi river valley even extending off into the ohio river valley we're seeing severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings in effect due to this very strong storm system. it's really just all along this cold frontal area surging in warm air from the south and what that is doing it will be colliding with all of this cold arctic air coming in out of canada and once that collides that is where you're going to be seeing this very severe weather threat even across portions of tennessee. then over towards the carolinas you're going to be seeing that frontal area push through, bringing with it all of these destructive winds, tornadoes, ping pong size hail and then off towards the north into the great lakes, even though the rough weather is down toward the south windy conditions and heavy snow is very well likely. localized areas seeing up to 12 centimeters. behind this frontal area this cold air will be changing things up. even across the rockies. you're still seeing heavy snowfall. denver just with a high of 5. take a look at w
and northern mississippi. you could be seeing wind gusts over 100 miles an hour. hail, frequent lightning and even the risk of tornadoes. cannot rule that out at all. also that cold air that will be wrapping around, that's going to be bringing snowfall for western great lakes and dropping down these temperatures. look at winnipeg, minus 9 for you. ten-degree drop going into thursday. washington, d.c. and new york, you'll see a slight warm-up ahead of that front. warm air coming through but it will start to cool right back off once that front begins to pass by. now, here in europe, several systems we're watching. a severe one over the british isles bringings heavy rainfall, risk of flooding, gusty winds. look at the lines close together. that's indicating about 40 to 60 kilometer per hour sustained winds as it pushes overhead. behind it, though, just like in the americas, we'll see a cold air mass filter in. 13 and 12 on your high. on tuesday expect that to get down to the single digits by the end of the week for london and paris. already below the freezing mark in moscow and kiev. minus 4
. then this one moving across the lower mississippi river valley. this is bringing rain showers here. it will start to change over to snow as it works off here towards the northeast and some thunderstorm activity along the gulf coast. then across portions of appalachians where you don't want any more snow. it looks like going over the weekend more of that stuff will be coming down. travel across this area will be rough as that continues to push off to the east. in the northern plains things are remaining on the dry side. we're seeing another storm move into the pacific northwest. this will bring us snow showers into the higher elevation. main threat temperatures are cooling off. that's combining with the moist air and what that's bringing is fog across this region. if you have any plans flying out of vancouver or seattle check on the flights there as that fog could be delaying them. denver with a high of only minus 1. chicago at 1 here on your friday. let's take a look at the european continent. first the british isles. all this cloud cover is moving towards the east. what's that bri
